    I'm not sure about where to watch it but if you have ESPN3 it should be on. I've been watching a lot of the games so far and it's amazing how good the guys are at 16. I'm not sure how success at U-17 level translates to the future but it's a lot of football to watch for the people who have been missing it a lot (like me:001_302:) and you could find the next star of the world in this competition! I'd say it's pretty good competition and very high-energy football.

    Both England and the US won their opening matches by the way!

    I mean I'm sure most people will only pay attention to just their country! So I'll be watching USA-Uzbekistan :001_302:

    but the Argentina-Jamaica was just one game I saw that was honestly just like a professional game. So there's a lot of good football being played around the world, even in Rwanda and Jamaica!

    There was just a magical goal in the Rwanda vs Uruguay, in the last moments. Uruguay is such a fun team they always provide some exciting things these days

    Is the England Canada game on TV? I thought it was happening yesterday but I could only find the other game from our group, Uruguay Rwanda.

    I think he might be too old or he played in the previous one.

    He's one of our best kids IMO. I was wondering why he was left out.

    Probably over-confidence after beating Czech Rep. so handily. Oh well, it's a teachable moment for them.

    I no he's listed in the squad for the under 20's world cup that starts at the end of next month. Not too sure why he isn't picked for the Under 17's. Not sure if he might be too old.
